Coach Bob Hartley says that Johnny Gaudreau reminds him of Chris Drury.
That's not a bad comparison as Drury had a very good NHL career until degeneration in his left knee ended his career. "You talk to Johnny, you talk to Chris Drury, you see the spark in their eyes," Hartley said. "They want to do well and they love to be in the clutch. A clutch situation, it seems they find a way to rise to the occasion. Personality-wise, they look alike a lot." Gaudreau has 12 goals and 29 points this season and is likely the second best rookie in the NHL behind Filip Forsberg. Dec 28 - 7:04 AM

Johnny Gaudreau netted two goals for the Flames in their 4-1 win over the Oilers on Saturday night.

With all the talk that the rookie race is two-headed with Filip Forsberg and Aaron Ekblad, Gaudreau continues to impress and should be in the discussion, too. He has goals in three straight games: 12 goals and 29 points on the season. Curtis Glencross (goal, assist) and Joe Colborne got the other goals.

Johnny Gaudreau scored his first career NHL hat trick in Monday night's big come-from-behind win over LA, which ended Calgary's eight game losing streak.

Johnny Hockey led the charge over a 21 minute span in the game's final 22 minutes to tie the game at three. His first was a power play tally one-timer after it deflected off of LA's Jarret Stoll. the second was a calm loop around the net as he slid it five-hole through a sprawling Jon Quick. The third though, was an errant pass to a would-be nobody and instead went off of Drew Doughty's skates and in. Lastly, the final two goals came with Hiller pulled. He now has 10 goals and 27 points.

Johnny Gaudreau got a goal for the Flames in their 3-2 overtime loss to the Canucks on Saturday night.

Gaudreau’s goal at 7:05 tied the game up at 2 in the third period. The 21-year-old rookie now has seven goals and 24 points this year, certainly solid numbers from someone with such limited experience at the pro level. David Jones scored the other marker.

Johnny Gaudreau scored a goal in Friday's 3-1 loss to Pittsburgh.

Gaudreau's first period goal cut the Penguins lead to 2-1, but the Flames were unable to come back. The 21-year-old has had a productive season so far. The former fourth round pick in 2011 has six goals and 22 points in 30 games. If he stays on this pace, Gaudreau will come close to the 60-point mark. Markus Granlund and Jiri Hudler picked up the assists on the goal.

One of the things Johnny Gaudreau has had to adjust to this season is road trips.

Gaudreau is used to playing for Boston College in the NCAA, which was comparatively light on travel. "The farthest we ever had to go was a three-and-a-half hour bus trip and we had to stay overnight," Gaudreau recalled. "Most of our bus trips were about a half-hour to an hour. Every school is pretty much in the Boston area and Vermont and Maine are the only ones far. On game days, we would usually leave an hour before we wanted to be there. If we had to be there at 5 p.m., we'd leave at 3:30 or 4 p.m., get there, warm up and play." Gaudreau also played in 40 NCAA games last season while he's hoping to participate in more than double that before the start of the offseason.

Johnny Gaudreau recorded an assist in Thursday's 4-3 overtime victory against Colorado.

Gaudreau is on a three-game point streak. He has four goals and 20 points in 26 contests this season. His current points-per-game pace is sustainable for him, although obviously rookies are never a safe bet to perform consistently.

Johnny Gaudreau picked up his fourth goal of the season on Saturday as he scored for the first time in eight games.

Gaudreau also picked up an assist and now has 17 points this season. In most seasons he would be the talk of the Calder Trophy but with Filip Forsberg running away with it thus far, Gaudreau is getting lost in the race. Nevertheless, he has gotten off to a very nice start and his offense is one of the reasons that the Calgary Flames are the surprise team of the NHL as the season has past the quarter mark.
Nov 30 - 7:05 AM

Johnny Gaudreau was credited with a hit on Saturday when he bumped into Chris Phillips.

The significance of this is that it's Gaudreau's first hit at the NHL level and it came in his 19th career game. It's obvious that hits are not a big part of Gaudreau's game but the offensively talented winger has contributed fantasy-wise with three goals and 12 points in 18 games this season to go with a plus-seven rating. Don't go looking for minutes from him either as he has yet to sit in the sin bin.

Johnny Gaudreau has been told by Flames GM Brad Treliving that he should find a permanent home in Calgary.

In other words, Gaudreau isn't likely to be sent to the minors in the foreseeable future. "He's just feeling more comfortable, he's finding his way, he's getting more chances — he belongs here," Treliving said of Gaudreau. "That's not to say there won't be bumps along the road but he's passed the point where: (a) it's too much for him, and, (b) this is where he can learn." Gaudreau has three goals and 12 points in 17 games in 2014-15.

Nov 2 - 10:12 PM

Johnny Gaudreau netted the eventual winner and helped on another in Calgary's 4-3 victory over Nashville on Friday night.

Johnny Hockey had his second two point effort of his brief career. His secondary assist on Jiri Hudler's early third period goal to tie the game at two was impressive due to his poise to stand in front of the giant Nashville defensemen, it was his goal that was wow-worthy. After receiving the head-man pass from Deryk Engelland at the red line, he fought through both a back-checker and a defenseman to gain the zone, cut wide left, and ripped a laser past the indominable Pekka Rinne far side.
